Fluke Calibration 1504
Tweener Thermometer Readout for Thermistor Probes
The Fluke Calibration 1504-156 Tweener Thermometer Readout for Thermistor Probes gives you more accuracy in a limited temperature range as a thermistor readout. Thermistors are less fragile than PRTs and less likely to be impacted by mechanical shock. Thermistors are more sensitive to temperature, have faster response times, and come in many shapes for different applications.
Typical accuracy of a 1504 is ±0.002 °C with a resolution of 0.0001 °C.
Each Tweener is programmable to match a probe's constants for maximum linearity and accuracy. All probe constants and coefficients are programmed through simple, front-panel keystrokes. Temperature is displayed in °C, °F, K, or resistance in ohms.
The 1504 accurately measures the resistance of the probe and then converts the resistance to a temperature value using its built-in algorithms.
For convenience, the 1504 reads the common industrial grade IEC-751 or "385 ALPHA RTD without any programming. Enter the actual R0 and ALPHA of the individual probe for increased accuracy. For maximum accuracy, use the ITS-90 formulas. The Tweener accepts the subranges 4 and 6 through 11.
ITS-90 formulas reside in the Tweener's firmware. If your probe has been calibrated for any of the above subranges of the ITS-90, you simply enter the coefficients directly into your Tweener.
Each thermometer comes complete with an RS-232 interface for automation of temperature data collection, calibrations, or process control functions. An IEEE-488 interface is available as an option.
The 1504 is calibrated digitally using the front-panel buttons. You never have to open the box to calibrate it. This calibration protocol further reduces the cost of this readout. It goes where you go and works the way you want it to.
With 9934 LogWare, both Tweener models may be used for real-time data acquisition. Collect data and analyze it graphically or statistically. Additionally, Tweeners may be used as reference thermometers with MET/TEMP II software.
Want to take your Tweener on the road? Order Fluke Calibration's 9320A Battery Pack. Our battery gives you 36 hours between charges, allowing you to take your work wherever you need.
Each Tweener and its accompanying probe (sold separately) have their own individual calibration reports. Overall system error can be calculated from the individual errors, rendering the added cost of system data unnecessary. However, for those requiring it, system data is available at two or more temperatures of your choice.
